The restless crowd. The slit in the speaker cone. The distortion. The rock glory. One of the most influential guitar songs ever, the story of Link Wray’s “Rumble” is the stuff of legend. I’ve always loved the song, and have covered it on guitar (and taught it as a guitar teacher), but something made me want to try it on uke to see if some of the attitude would still filter through – regardless of the instrument. I think it does. Hope you enjoy.
Recorded with a Pono Acacia Tenor Deluxe (ATD) ukulele and a Line Audio CM4 microphone.
From the vaults, here is a cover of George Harrison’s wonderful song Something that I performed on ukulele. What can I say, Pattie Boyd Boyd must have been quite the muse. Something is arguably George’s greatest song with the Beatles or even his entire career, which is saying something. Hope you enjoy.
Recorded with a Koaloha concert ukulele and a matched stereo pair of Shure KSM 141 microphones in Holualoa, Hawai’i, 3/5/08.
